U.S. immigration data is on paper and a mess, says report

Patrick Thibodeau | March 8, 2017
In 2013, there were 460,000 H-1B workers in U.S., says report

EPI is recommending that Congress pass legislation requiring regular electronic publication of this data, including occupations and wages. The legislation should also require inter-agency cooperation to "standardize, digitize, and improve the quality of data on nonimmigrant visas," the report said.

U.S. Senators Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), in recently introduced legislation seeking reform of the H-1B and L-1 programs, want the U.S. Department of Labor to produce "extensive statistical data about the H-1B and L-1 programs, including wage data, worker education levels, place of employment and gender."
